Since my office is at my parent’s house, I am not able to go there every day to check up on things. I get my mom to check my packages for me on a daily basis, but I like the ease and comfort of being able to check in on my stuff with Blink Home Security.
For those of you who don’t know, the Blink XT is a wire-free security camera that sends motion-activated alerts to your smartphone for only $99. It is super easy to install, and I love that I can move it all around my home. Right now I have it in my filming area, but I can also move it into my office or the front door to see my packages. All you have to do is place the camera where you want it, turn it on and feel safe. I can also move it over to my apartment if I go away for a few days and want to monitor my cat Pinky to make sure he is ok. The setup takes under five minutes. It’s easy, just connect Blink Home Security to your WIFI like you would when connecting your smartphone.
Another great thing about Blink is how affordable it is compared to similar competitors. You also don’t have to worry about complicated contracts and monthly fees. Blink uses standard AA batteries that last two years, so you don’t have to continually charge them or use any ugly wires.
No more needing to regularly check your phone either, because Blink has motion-triggered security alerts. When motion is detected in your home, Blink detects it and immediately sends you a push notification alert and an HD video to your smartphone. This way you can rest assured knowing that Blink Home Security is watching your back and will keep you notified when it detects any suspicious activity. It also saves all of the video files so you can share them easily on your smartphone. If you want, you can also watch a live feed right on your smartphone from anywhere in the world, though this will drain the battery a bit faster. The Blink app is free to download on any smartphone.
You can also set up multiple cameras if you want to place them at different locations around your home for a view over your whole house. With Blink, I can now watch my home from anywhere and have peace of mind knowing that I can keep a watchful eye over Pinky when I’m away.
